Unusual Wheel Handlebars
This Bike Has Been Given a Steering Wheel Instead of Handlebars

This classy and unusual looking bike has been given a sleek red steering wheel in place of handlebars. Japanese studio Taphonomy is responsible for this fantastic bike design; they call the steering wheel handlebar an ‘angel ring.’ This handlebar ultimately works the same way as any other car steering wheel would, making it an interesting addition to this retro looking bike.

The wheel itself is covered is wooden and has an almost reddish hue to it. The bike’s brakes have been placed in the center of the steering wheel, making it easy to access them. This bike offers stylish men and women a remarkably fashionable alternative to regular bicycles.

Replacing handlebars with a stylish steering wheel is an incredibly clever way to switch up traditional bike designs. I wonder if this would be any trickier to ride.
